3 Easy, Elegant Picnic-Basket
Menus for Summer

An outdoor wine tasting, movie screening, or concert; Shakespeare in the park; and any/all beach gatherings are the essence of summertime. And each calls for a blanket, a bottle of wine, and a fabulous picnic. The best picnics are the simplest: Make one outstanding sandwich, buy the rest of your snacks and sides, and mix or buy something special to drink. These three dream picnic menus—a Provençal-inspired one for the park, a veggie-driven spread for the beach, and a baguette sandwich to bring to an outdoor movie, complete with popcorn and candy—are easy, sophisticated, and so much fun.
